The longest word in the English language. According to folk-lore Antidisestablishmentarianism is the longest word in the dictionary, it means being against separating church and state.
However, floccinaucinihilipilification, a word found in the Oxford English dictionary since 1800, is one letter longer. Strange but true, this word means estimating that something is worthless!
While the Oxford English Dictionary has even longer words such as
pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, these are compound technical words and many people discount them.
The longest one-syllable word in the English language is ‘screeched.’
We think that “Almost” is the longest word in the English language with all the letters in

The word “listen ” contains the same letters as the word “silent”. The longest place-name still in use is Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwenuakitanatahu,
a New Zealand hill.
Los Angeles’s full name is ‘El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula’ and can be abbreviated to 3.63% of its size, ‘L.A.’
The name for Oz in the ‘Wizard of Oz’ was thought up when the creator, Frank Baum, looked at his filing cabinet and saw A-N, and O-Z, hence ‘Oz.’
The longest common word that you can type with just the left hand is probably ‘Stewardesses’, however there is the obscure but longer: ‘Aftercataracts’. With the right hand the longest word is Phyllophyllin. (Lolypop comes close, but as Groucho Marx would say: ‘no cigar’)
To ‘testify’ was based on men in the Roman court swearing to a statement made by swearing on their testicles.
The combination ‘ough’ can be pronounced in nine different ways. The following sentence contains them all ‘A rough-coated, dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough; after falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed.’
The only 15 letter word that can be spelled without repeating a letter is uncopyrightable.
Facetious and abstemious contain all the vowels in the correct order, as does arsenious, meaning ‘containing arsenic.’
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a wonderful Wednesday people,
never going to get anywhere with a parrot fish.’

ANSWER: The Matrix! Neo (Keanu Reeves) believes that Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), an elusive figure considered to be the most dangerous man alive, can answer his question — What is the Matrix? Neo is contacted by Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), a beautiful stranger who leads him into an underworld where he meets Morpheus. They fight a brutal battle for their lives against a cadre of viciously intelligent secret agents. It is a truth that could cost Neo something more precious than his life.
